    I will second the motion that this forum, specifically the razr section is beyond awesome. I have no patience for forums where any sniping or boorish behavior of any sort occurs. Cheers to you each and all for making this THE place to look for logical, insightful, and relevant answers!

    Thanks,
    Geoff

    Version 1.8 is in the hacks sections but 1.81 is only posted over at Droidrzr.com

    Download and extract the utility fully plug your phone in on MTP or Camera mode and hit option 2 and let is do it's thing.

    And, I assume also install voodoo as well so that I can un root as needed?

    Right, as I understand it sydman, voodoo allows one to unroot for ota, and then re root back after ota...is that correct?

    Option 1 is to restore your system to stock .211, so no I would not do that unless you are having problems.

    Option 2 is to root.

    The rest of the options pretty much do what they say, install whatever program they mention. The last two for flashing boot.img I would not worry about those.

    Thanks,

    You can install Bootstrap or Safestrap but NOT BOTH, choose one or the other if you want to install.

    I use Bootstrap but I am not a fan of Safestrap, Safestrap is if you are going to be installing custom ROMS.

    I like Bootstrap for backups.
